Your Kitchen. It’s the centerpiece of your home. It’s where the family gathers, it’s where many precious family memories are made. But, the Kitchen can also be one of the most expensive areas in your home to remodel. If your Kitchen is showing signs of age and needs an upgrade, there are a few ways you can freshen its look without breaking the bank.
The cabinets in your Kitchen make a bold statement as to the style of your Kitchen. You can buy some new hardware for them, like knobs or hinges that can update the look to a more polished, modern appearance. If you want to take it a step further, you could paint your cabinets for a refreshing touch, which would cost you about $35- $85 per linear foot if done professionally.
Your countertops are one way to show others that you take pride in the appearance of your Kitchen. When you are on a budget, it may not be an option to invest in grandeur granite countertops, but you can add moldings around the front edges to give your countertop a frame piece. Another option would be adding a backsplash made from glass tile or laminates, especially if you have a large amount of counter space that’s too expensive to remodel on your budget.
The walls within your Kitchen often get overlooked when it comes to home design. Consider adding a metal utensil rack to hang your finest utensils. It not only adds efficiency to your cooking routine, but a touch of professionalism. If you’re a little cheekier, use vintage food posters to bring out the originality in your kitchen. Lastly, you could even incorporate some free hanging shelves to display your fine china.
